    Rodrigo Duterte: 'I'm not joking - clean masks with petrol'

    Philippines' president Rodrigo Duterte has once again told people to disinfect their face masks with petrol - insisting he was "not joking".


    He had made similar remarks last week - but officials were quick to correct him, and suggested it was a joke.


    Health officials also said cloths masks should be washed normally, and surgical masks replaced after use.


    But on Friday, the president doubled down - saying "what I've said was true... go to a gasoline station".

    There is no evidence that gasoline can disinfect masks; having prolonged contact with it can be harmful; and pouring flammable liquids can be a fire risk.


    What did Mr Duterte say?


    Referring to his earlier comments, Mr Duterte said: "They [critics] said, 'Duterte's insane.' Stupid! If I'm insane, you should be the president, not me.


    "What I've said was true. If alcohol isn't available, especially for the poor, just go to a gasoline station, and use [gas] to disinfect.


    "I am not joking. I am not joking. You… you try to get inside my brain."



    What did he say last week?


    Mr Duterte said those who didn't have cleaning supplies could use gasoline as a disinfectant to clean their masks.


    "At the end of the day, hang [the mask] somewhere and spray it with Lysol if you can afford it," he said, referencing a popular disinfectant brand.


    "For people who don't [have Lysol], drench it in gasoline or diesel... just find some gasoline [and] dip your hand [with the mask] in it."


    After last week's comments, presidential spokesman Harry Roque quickly corrected him.


    "I can't believe that after four years of him as president, you still don't know [him]," said Mr Roque, according to news site Rappler.


    "[It's only a] joke. Why would we use gasoline for washing?"


    Meanwhile, health official Maria Rosario Vergeire said cloth masks should be washed and dried normally, and surgical masks replaced after use.

    Sounds like he's trying to muscle in on the Baldy Orange Cunto - Stoopid Brazilian twat duet.

    ^lol. He has said many dodgy things in the past, only to have his people backtrack/ offer an apology or explanation afterwards.

    But, unlike the Orange one & the Brazilian, Du30 has believed in the severity of the virus, and ordered a lockdown of the country early on (16 March). Anyone who meets with him must also be tested (and be negative) for the virus. He also wears a mask (and sometimes face shield). Whenever there are Cabinet meetings, the people around him wear masks and/or face shields. Du30 is immunocompromised & doesn't want to risk getting infected. There are many rumours about his health and the Palace has refused to release his medical records to the public (despite clamor by some journalists).

    Gasoline and kerosene can be contaminated with fungus and bacteria. You wouldn’t think it could live in that strong liquid.

    The guy has a quirky sense of humor. He's trying to outdo Trump. Du30 might say the dumbest things, but he has the best intentions for the Republic. I do not trust his political advisers. They've schemed programs upon programs what would bury the country nipple-deep in debt, even before the pandemic. The arrival of the virus even provided an excuse and alibi to carry out the plan and slam it home - throat deep.
    I am so unlucky that if I fall into a barrel full of D*ick**s, I'd come out sucking my own thumb!

    Huffing petrol fumes probably helps in understanding Duterte's mindset.

    It could be a cunning plan for him to make smokers give with a bang.
